Move into a realm of contrasting prints for striking summertime style at Missguided.co.uk. Indulge your wardrobe with the new trend and shop Missguided for the latest in women’s online fashion and footwear.

Much like switching to bright lipstick or embracing a steady rotation of summery skirts, our infatuation with bold, tribal-print pieces inevitably emerges when we transition into warmer months! Just like the colour blocking/jewel tones trend of Autumn/Winter 2011, tribal prints is taking over this Spring/Summer. The trend consists of strong, graphic prints combined with warm, earthy tones and natural accents.

Tribal prints add a funky twist to any outfit and this season it’s all about combining and layering different prints! Celebs boasting the Aztec/tribal print dresses trend feature the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen, Kim Kardashian and Lauren Conrad and these A list stars love to mix tribal motifs with plaids and stripes.

On the cold rainy days that see us through to Spring try statement leggings such as Bex (12.99) add a loose fit cardigan and team with smart flats and a satchel bag for a laid back look.

The Crystle (£24.99) tribal print playsuit is perfect for sunny Summer days! Accessorise with beaded bracelets and metallic sandals for a cool beach look every day.

If you’re print shy, the Loriana (£8.99) tribal design tee is great for adding some cool tribal style to a plain outfit. Couple Loriana with your favourite skinny jeans, quilted jackets and add a pair of heels and you’re good to go.

If you invest in one key piece from the tribal/aztec print collection this Spring/Summer make it the Fina (£24.99) dress, dress it up with killer black
stilettos and a clutch for nights out with the girls or down with sandals and a shoulder bag for a day at the beach.

From accessories to knitwear, blouses to leggings, there is nothing that you can’t find in these fabulous prints. For all your fashion needs log onto Missguided.co.uk and start your style journey.

Make a splash with this season’s top wellington boot, says SoYouShoes

With the winter weather taking a turn for the worst, shoe retailer SoYouShoes has the ideal solution – wellington boots.

The UK has experienced huge amounts of rainfall in the last few days and snowfall is expected in the coming weeks. Those living within the UK would do well to get their winter footwear sorted before the bad weather really hits home, and to really keep warm and dry wellies are the only way to go.

SoYouShoes has recently released a number of new wellington boots on its official website, all of which can be ordered in time for Christmas. The online company has featured many of this season’s top trends in its wellingtons, so that wearers can mix function with form.

Kate Good of SoYouShoes said: “Though many ladies will be wearing our stunning high heel court shoes to the office Christmas party, donning a good pair of wellies is definitely advisable when heading out into the awful weather we’ve been experiencing as of late.

“All of our wellies are the ideal addition to any winter wardrobe and have been created with tough materials that will stand up to rain, sleet, snow and any other nasty weather conditions to be experienced in the coming months.”

Shoppers can pick between quilted wellington boots to match their on-trend quilted jackets, short floral wellies to give a touch of colour in the dull winter months, or the original hunter wellingtons in a range of colours, as well as many other styles. Prices for SoYouShoes’ fashionable wellies start at just £18, so shoppers can pick up a pair without breaking the bank.

SoYouShoes also has good stocks of ankle boots, such as the sought after chelsea ankle boot, which would make ideal alternatives to the wellie boot. Ladies can find every kind of footwear under the sun from the online shop, with everything from a pair of gorgeous lace up heel ankle boots to extra tall riding boots available, making the retailer the only one to go to for those on the lookout for stunning footwear this season.

The Book People builds up to the Imagine Festival 2012

The Imagine Festival, sponsored by online book retailer the Book People, is currently having the final touches put to it before the doors open at the Southbank Centre in London on February 11th. The festival aims to encourage children of all ages to think creatively and is packed with activities and events.

The Imagine Festival, sponsored by online book retailer the Book People, is currently having the final touches put to it before the doors open at the Southbank Centre in London on February 11th. The festival aims to encourage children of all ages to think creatively and is packed with activities and events.

Running from 11th – 26th February, the Imagine Festival is said to be one of the best children’s events of the year. The festival is now in its 11th year, having been run since 2001, and is set to be at its biggest and best in 2012. The list of events contains something for everyone, from musical and dance performances, through to poetry and fiction readings from some the best children’s authors in the world.

The festival is designed to encourage children to be creative, so there will be chances for children to make their own works of art, write their own fiction, and take part in dance and music events and workshops. With workshops covering all of these topics and more and opportunities to watch funny and entertaining acts, this festival is great for children and young people of all ages.

Children and parents can look forward to story-telling from books by Jacqueline Wilson, Cathy Cassidy, MacKenzie Crook and Francesca Simon, as well as a premiere of The Trial of Dennis the Menace musical. There will even be opera for babies, orchestral reproductions of The Jungle Book and Carnival of the Animals, and Robert Winston will be demonstrating some thrilling activities, included in his book Science Experiments.

“The Imagine Festival is meant to inspire children to become more creative in every aspect of their lives, and it also aims to introduce them to things they would not normally be interested in,” said Donna Stevenson of the Book People.

“For example, a lot of children that attend the Imagine Festival go home with a new interest in poetry or dance, and this can help to lead them to new hobbies and even, in some cases, to their future careers,” she added.

Babies and children’s story books can be bought online from the Book People.

Lindsay Eyers of the Book People said: “The benefits of exercise have been well documented – it can cut the risk of serious illnesses such as diabetes and cancer, as well as reducing the risk of early death.

“At the Book People, we want to encourage everyone to get back into exercise in 2012 and you can use our superb collection of keep fit books to help.” The Book People has a number of ‘keep fit books, such as ‘Yoga Made Easy’ by Zest Magazine and Samantha Magee, who has years of experience as a teacher in many forms of yoga, including Bikram, Hatha and children’s yoga, as well as being a Reiki master. Whether readers are just starting out with yoga or have been practicing the discipline for years, this book can give you the guidance you need to learn all of the positions, breathing and meditation techniques required, all without even leaving the comfort of your own home.

Those that prefer a more light-hearted approach to exercise should look to another of the Book People’s favourite keep fit books, ‘Dance to the Musicals’ by Arlene Phillips. As the title suggests, this book teaches the reader dance routines to some of the West End’s most memorable numbers. By using the accompanying DVD and detailed photographs in the book, readers can get dancing to songs like ‘The Time of My Life’, ‘Mamma Mia’ and ‘Night Fever’.
